The golden cowboy of Wrangler's Creek returns home to Texas to discover some old flames never fizzle…
There are plenty of things Garrett Granger hadn't counted on losing—his child to miscarriage, his wife to another man and the family business thanks to a crooked CFO. He also hadn't counted on moving back to the family ranch, where he's met by another surprise—former flame Nicky Marlow, who is renting his grandmother's old house.
Nicky's been rebuilding her shattered life since her husband's death two years ago. But Garrett's timely arrival in Wrangler's Creek doesn't automatically make him the missing piece of the puzzle. Even if he does seem to adore her two-year-old daughter… Even if seeing him again stirs up old feelings Nicky would gladly keep buried, forcing her to wonder if moving forward has to mean leaving everything behind…
No Getting Over a Cowboy was more of an experience to me than reading a book. I was right there in the middle of the story, observing, feeling and sharing the events that had me smiling, laughing, and even broke my heart a bit. The characters felt like my friends that I was visiting, and I was sad to leave them behind.
The whole story is written with such vivid images and invites the reader into the world created by the author, a world of friends, lovers, family, life, love, and heartbreak. But most of all it is a world where you can face your inner demons and troubles, learn from the past experiences, and grow as a human being, to reach your potential.
I loved the characters, the whole ensemble of the people from the ranch hands to the widows, the family and friends and town folks. They each have an important role in the development of the story and they carried that responsibility well.
Garrett Granger as a hero was drool worthy for sure, handsome, sexy, kind, considerate good guy, who means well even when occasionally stepping on toes of others. He is a complex character who had conquered his past the best he could, he wasn't afraid to show emotions, as clumsy as some of the attempts were. I adored him, simply said. And Nicky Marlow was definitely his soul mate.
Nicky had endured so much in her childhood, the memories still haunting her day and night. Her ability to face them step by step and scream on the face of the demons hunting her had me in tears. There's a brilliant metaphorical scene where she and Garrett get the ultimate reward from their battles with the past, where the frame of their pain crumbles down and give them freedom from the pain.
This series is getting just better with each unique installment. There are danger and threats, loving and lies, betrayal and secrets, the whole tale resembling life in its caricature way of exaggerated personalities and life events they face. I adored every moment I got to spent with them in that chaotic way of life at the Wrangler's Creek, Texas. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity for a visit!
